Hospitality to Refugees

St. Paul & the Redeemer partners with different organizations to help resettle refugees in their new life in the U.S. We provide home furnishings, a stocked pantry, and months of one-on-one mentorship.

(Check out this Sun-Times story about the first family we co-sponsored in 2016).

For the third time, SPR will co-sponsor a refugee family in Chicago.  From December through May, in cooperation with the Syrian Community Network, we will work with a family from Syria. Teams of volunteer visitors on Saturdays from 10am to noon are needed. If you would like to volunteer as a home visitor please contact Sheila Bator at sbator@aol.com.  Note: An online background check is required of all volunteers for this project. The cost is $10.  If you were a visitor to the family from Eritrea this year, the Syrian Community Network will accept the clearance you received from RefugeeOne and there would be no cost involved.
